A video has been released asking for an exchange of the five Britons taken hostage back in May with Iraqi prisoners. You can read more for a Peter Moore update.
“The PM has been in close contact with PM Maliki on this case, and discussed it again with him over the ‘phone this morning,” a statement from Brown’s office said.
“Both leaders deplored the taking and public parading of hostages, and agreed to continue their close cooperation to secure their early release.”
In the video released Tuesday, a man who identified himself as Peter Moore pleaded with the British government to perform “a simple exchange” of prisoners with his captors so “we can go home.”
